Hello Xbit!!! What happened with you? Until now i was reading good reviews, with pertinent conclusions here. But for a few months you start to show some sloppy made articles or some hard deep commercial articles. This one is in first and in second category. Can you explain why this article came soon after hardocp maid a similar comparison, but with totally different conclusions. They also say that the GF580 or GF590 have better performance, but they also put in the balance the price of the cards and the power consumption.

Also, in your article this card sometimes is worse then the reference card. How is it possible? http://www.kitguru.net/co...view-the-ultimate-580/21/ for them this card is not going over 35 dBA at 1m distance (in Furmark) , and in your test same distance but only 3D is going over 40 dBA. Check also temperature.

This article is 2 times faulty: 1. It sound like a commercial for nVidia for the expensive and power hungry cards. 2. The technical result are contradicting itself: reference card is better then a special design with a bigger cooler!!!!!!!!

I agree at least that Xbitlab is pro-NVidia. Maybe they hate ATI for their neoliberal bully ways. I'm still favoriting Xbitlabs, because I agree with fighing against ATI. I get info about the perfomance of my future NVidia purchace, but I also see the contradictions in their articles. NVidia is just a little slower than ATI and that is good enough for me.

I did not said they must be pro ATI or pro nVidia. They must be impartial regarding the conclusions. Look also in the pro points at the end: PhysX is a high point, but at low points they do not say that you need 2 cards if you want to use 3 screens. They should point all the facts, not only what is good.
I agree that nVidia has some performance advantage, but also the price is different. The consumer will judge by himself if that advantage in performance is worthing the extra cash and extra power.
And don't think that i'm an ATI fan or a AMD fan. I am just an anti-nvidia fan because of my experience with them.

Yes, XBitLabs must be impartial, but if you can't help it, you might as well choose the better side. I can ignore XBitLabs errors if they are done for the right cause.

580 is the best single card out there. 580 SLI is an enthusiast dream. More is not needed.

I just hope that Nvidia will still support their older products.

Stick with Nvidia cards. Nvidia cards for Windows have less driver problems and seem to be a more seamless fit for Windows computers.
